Our Goal

As Christian writers, our goal is to impact the world for Christ through our written words. That's something Capital Christian Writers Fellowship has been passionate about for years, and why we're bringing the Your Time to Write Summit 2021 to Christian writers of fiction and nonfiction for FREE. 

For three days, 21 experts will share their wisdom, encouragement and ideas to help you become a better writer, marketer and publisher of the words God has given you to share. THIS is your Christian writer experience: to go deeper, farther and wider when you trust God as your guide.
